FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
BUY VIDEO GAMES, FEED THE WORLD
Buying video games can help feed the hungry this holiday season. JJGames.com and World Vision team-up to raise $50,000 for fight against world hunger.
Denver, December 11th 2009 – JJGames.com and World Vision are partnering in the fight against world hunger. From December 11th to December 21st 2009, five percent of every video game purchase will be donated to World Vision food programs and 100% of all donations given on the website will be matched by JJGames, up to $20,000.
JJGames will also be donating the proceeds from a charity auction for the “Holy Grail of Gaming”, Nintendo World Championships Gold cartridge, which last sold for more than $17,000. The charity auction starts on December 11th on eBay.
Nintendo World Championships Gold is one of 26 cartridges ever made and was given away as part of a Nintendo sponsored competition in 1990. The cartridge plays on the original Nintendo and contains Super Mario Bros, Rad Racer, and Tetris but only allows six minutes to play. After the time expires players are shown a total score based upon their performance in all three games.
“Nintendo World Championships: Gold Edition has become the definition and idea of a Holy Grail.” says Nick Reichert at RacketBoy.com, a video game collecting website “Its every element seems to add to its energy, and in time, it will only become more costly and harder to acquire.”
